Winterizing Pool that hasnt been maintained
I have a smaller inground pool about 16X32. When I opened it this spring I had a water leak and was loosing water faster than normal. So I shut it down and planned to repair it when I had time. Well that never happened and here it is time to close it up. I shocked it a little throughout the summer to keep misquitos out, But it never got totally algie free. Would you close it up as I always do and worry with it next year? Or would you try to shock it run the filter and reduce whatever you had growing in there? When I do shock it I use 8 gallons of liquid chlorine if its not very bad. If its very bad I use 10-12 gallons.
